      • Use built in notifications for macOS

        Notifications built into the OS (which all apps I've seen use other than Outlook and now Teams) are more functional and allow for more user control. Most importantly, they honor Do Not Disturb settings, which is critical.

        • Unread message count on Chat, Teams, channels

          Right now there is a unread message count badge on the Activity tab icon (I guess you only get that if you have followed any channels?). However I would much rather prefer if the badge was on the Chat and Teams tab icons so I can see where there is activity. Currently collapsed teams are also indicated having activity. Expanded teams should have the same indication.

          Furthermore, the unread activity badge on both the Activity and the application icon count unread channels. I would prefer a message count.

          • Sound is too low and other sound problems

            VOLUME:

            The sound is too low!! Most people don't think it's even on. Let us customize the sound level, please.

            CUSTOMIZE SOUNDS:

            Right now sounds are all or nothing. This is not good. For example, you may want to have sound for Calls but not for chat or messages. There is a difference when you need to hear that someone is calling you – versus getting the constant bing/bing/bing on message chat.
            In addition – on commercial skype you could actually set sound notification channel or chat by channel or chat. Some things you want the bing – others it…

            • Follow and unfollow conversation thread

              Hi,

              This idea is not new. Currently we have a lot of unnecessary notifications and i believe we need flexible options to either get rid of them or setup banner/alert. And we already got "Follow channel" option in the latest update:
              https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16925461-allow-different-notifications-options-on-teams-and

              I think we should go forward and improve conversation/thread notifications.It's very annoying when you replied to the conversation and then it becomes spamming. You have no option to unfollow this conversation and keep receiving notifications. From the other hand, there are conversations where you either not mentioned directly by @ tag or not replied yet but want to…

                This item is still planned and in the queue. I wish I had more information to share, but unfortunately I do not.

                I’ll keep hounding the feature team and hope to have a better update soon.

              • Add team wide reminders

                We have weekly bot reminders currently on Slack and that would be a big advantage to getting our whole team moved over.

                For example:
                - Tuesdays at noon: Reminder - team meeting in 30 minutes
                - Last Friday of month: Finish submitting hours
                - etc....

                • Notifications are easily missed

                  The channel/team on which the notification has been made should stay more/better/longer visible so that you won't miss one. Slack is currently much better in that sense.

                  • Mute a channel - (Mute Chat is complete)

                    I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

                    Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

                    • Include notifications based on keywords.

                      We need to get notifications based on keywords. For example: I am a subject matter expert for SAP and I like to know when SAP is typed into a channel so I can offer assistance.

                      • Make "Follow this channel" the default setting.

                        Usual Microsoft lack of UI intuition.
                        Channels should be followed by default with the user unfollowing it if they wish.

                        • Make new conversation replies more noticeable

                          When a reply comes through on teams, the conversation is bolded to notify you that something is unread. But it's sometimes hard to see the bolded conversations. Simply adding some extra visual like the colored notification bar on outlook would help.

                          • Multiple Notifications Bugs

                            Hello,

                            We have been testing Microsoft Teams for almost a week now, while we love the product; however, it is proving to be counter productive when it stops sending notifications, we are using alternative means to notify each other to check messages on MS Teams.

                            What we noticed for example is that if discussions continue in a thread for over a day, no new notifications whatsoever are being triggered. In some occasions, even though we have an ongoing discussion, notifications stop, but only work if you tag the other person, but again, this is not a new thread, so it…

                            • Visual notification in systray of unread message (for both Mac and PC)

                              When there is an unread message, it would be *very* helpful if the systray icon could have a visual indicator that something is unread.

                              • Allow setting to remove message contents in banner alerts

                                When screensharing or working on the same computer with a co-worker it can be distracting and potentially harmful to show the contents of every new message that a user receives in the banner alert. There should be an option to "Hide contents of banner alert" so that users can still receive a desktop notification, but the contents of the message are not immediately displayed to anyone that happens to be looking at that user's desktop.

                                • Browser/OS independent desktop notifications using HTML5

                                  Not sure about the desktop clients because there isn't one available for my operating system. However, the web app is essentially unfit for purpose because I can't tell when anyone is trying to contact me unless I sit there, constantly staring at the app.

                                    • Important Message Notification

                                      Currently, there does not seem to be any notification on any platform when a message in a Team/Channel is marked Important. Please put an option to be notified for important messages, even if you aren't actually mentioned in the post.

                                        Regardless of where a meeting is created, Outlook or Microsoft Teams, the 15 minute reminders and the like should generate a notification from Microsoft teams to the user, either a popup dialogue window or otherwise.

                                        • Notification when a team call starts

                                          When someone calls you from a chat it's very obvious, you get a little pop up window which notifies you.

                                          However when someone starts a meeting within a team it's far less obvious - could we have the same sort of banner/notification as a chat call?
